Transferring a vehicle title is an important part of the process of buying or selling a vehicle in all states, including Ohio.

The buyer also must file Form 3774, Application for Certificate of Title for Motor Vehicle. The buyer will also have to pay sales taxes at the time of application; the amount depends upon the county. The buyer also pays title fees.

The buyer must present the title application in person at a Title Bureau or County Clerk of Courts Title Office.

Application for Certified Copy of Title

You obtain a replacement certified copy of the title by filing the same form as you would file for an original. The form is 3774 Application for Certificate of Title for a Motor Vehicle. It must be presented in person at a Title Bureau or County Clerk of Courts Title Office.

Forms Permitting Probationary License Holders to Drive During Restricted Hours

School or religious officials complete and sign Form 2826.

Application for Driver’s License Reinstatement After Alcohol or Drug Conviction

They also must file Form BMV2326 to apply to have their driving privileges reinstated.

Proof of Ohio Residency Certification Form

Sometimes an individual applies for an Ohio driver’s license and cannot prove Ohio residency through any of the acceptable documents. For example, a dependent young person who lives with their parents may not have these documents; likewise, a spouse of someone who has acceptable documents may not have documents to prove residency themselves. Those living in shelters also may lack these documents. In these cases, the parent, spouse, or agency official would fill out and sign Form BMV 2336.
